ZWO AM5 Harmonic EQ and AZ Mount (ZWO-AM5) $2,699.00
Mount Body The traditional equatorial mount requires heavy counterweights. It can be very difficult to keep balance in RA and DEC directions, also inconvenient for transit and storage, which bring the amateur astrophotographers a lot of pain when they are out for imaging. Some of the strain wave geared drive mounts are relatively simple in functions, insufficient in load capacity, also not very stable in use. The internal structure of the body optimized with the strain wave gear reducer and synchronous belt, bringing more accurate control and an amazing reduction ratio of 300:1. Astronomy-Dedicated Strain Wave Gear ZWO jointly developed...
